Event Details

What do the French Revolution, the restaurant at the end of the Universe and Dotheboys Hall have in common? To find out join us on a circular walk commencing and ending at the Angel underground to explore the lives of the authors and the locations associated with this bustling area of Islington. Playwrights, politicians and pamphleteers have all left their mark on this cosmopolitan area of London over the centuries.

This is a free walk generously funded by Islington Library and Heritage Service but booking is essential.

This is one of a series of four new walks on a literary theme designed by Islington Guided Walk guides to mark the publication of a Literary Road Map of Islington. The map has been created by Islington Library and HeritageService and like the walks celebrates the borough’s long, rich heritage of authors, screenwriters, poets and writers who have lived in Islington, and the literary works which have been inspired by and set in Islington.
